Rapeseed Oil Benefits

Rapeseed Oil Benefits

Rapeseed oil is produced from the oilseed rape plant. The versatility of this healthy oil is recognised by chefs, who value its taste, cooking performance and health benefits. Because of its low content of saturated fat and high content of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, rapeseed oil is commonly used in cooking and in salad oils, salad dressings, mayonnaise, fats and margarine.
